The Enfield Haunting


THE ENFIELD HAUNTING is now playing at the Ambassadors Theatre for a limited run until 2nd March 2024!

Based on the first-hand accounts of one of the ghost hunters, THE ENFIELD HAUNTING is the true story of what happened when a dedicated single mother, tries to protect her three children from something that is incomprehensible, deeply disturbing and is hurtling to a terrifying conclusion.

Catherine Tate (Doctor Who, Queen of Oz) and David Threlfall (Funny Woman, Shameless) star in the world premiere of this major new play by Paul Unwin (co-creator of the world’s longest running medical drama Casualty).

What is The Enfield Haunting about?

The Hodgson’s had no idea what a poltergeist was when, in the summer of 1977, furniture and toys started moving of their own accord. An ordinary, working-class family, who lived in a north London council house became the centre of one of the most famous poltergeist events in the world. This is the story of one night in the spring of 1978 when events were approaching a climax.
